Stuart was living in the black forest of Germany but that was not his place of birth as I understood it.. I am not sure I remember where he was from...
Who lives the furthest from Cambridge, where the Forum is based?
I've heard of people losing their first language when they move so young. Keep it up it is good to keep your cultural roots.My Friend is Swedish and her children have lost their swedish. When they go back to visit relatives they feel slightly detached from their heritage. My kids were born in Denmark but we weren't there long enough for them to learn Danish. I think that is quite sad too.Who lives the furthest from Cambridge, where the Forum is based?
"Cambridge is in the UK, up from London and across from Oxford."IIRC Oxford was described as being up from Cambridge.BTW, note to all Cantabrians, hard luck in the boat race- very unfortunate to have one of the eight fall ill just before the race.

Yes but which one? That is what I want to know. I want an Aussie off competition. Come on, which of you lives furthest from Cambridge. (There is no prize in the competition just lots of kudos)
This is completely off topic, except that it was triggered by the foregoing. I was in Oxford yesterday, showing a group of Sudanese visitors around. They were hugely disappointed there was not a single large building with a sign saying Oxford University that they could be photographed in front of. I pointed out that much of what they were seeing was the University. "Here is Trinity College, there is Ashmolean Museum, there's Magdalen, etc." What finally satisfied them was a shop with the name The Oxford University Shop in large letters on the front.Anyway - on topic - Scottish/English hybrid, who considers himself European.
